So I did the 'running bitcoin' thing with #Umbrel ☂️
Useful learning curve in setting up, downloading and verifying blockchain for myself, and the tangibility of having the node in my home and pointing my mobile wallets there, not depending on someone else's node accessed through a server somewhere.
Got there in the end but whole thing seemed a bit unstable.
Now feels like a big anticlimax...
Where to go next ❓
This question forces me to think what is my #bitcoin strategy.
If you don't shitcoin in the short term you'll feel relaxed about #bitcoin for the long term.
Your shitcoin degeneracy is proportional to your anxiety over the current bitcoin price.
Valid suspicions about shitcoins become invalid when projected onto bitcoin. Valid confidence in bitcoin becomes invalid when projected onto shitcoins.
There are no exceptions, if it isn't bitcoin then it's a shitcoin, and your pain is self-inflicted.
The Russia Today television network broadcast a news about the leak of more than 2000 documents that prove the responsibility of George Soros and Open Society in the manipulation of elections in all European countries.
I compared the landing pages of Mastodon, Pleroma and Misskey because I was curious how each characterized itself.
joinmastodon.org: "Mastodon isn’t a single website like Twitter or Facebook, it's a network of thousands of servers operated by different organizations and individuals that provide a seamless social media experience."
→ Mastodon is a network
join.misskey.page: "Misskey is a decentralized microblogging platform born on Earth. Since it exists within the Fediverse (a universe where various social media platforms are organized), it is mutually linked with other social media platforms."
→ Misskey is part of a network
pleroma.social: "Free and open communication for everyone. Pleroma is social networking software compatible with other Fediverse software such as Mastodon, Misskey, Pixelfed and many others. "
→ Pleroma is part of a network
While Klaus Schwab gets called out often on his crazed views, the more dangerous Yuval Noah Harari gets almost no criticism.
Why is that?
Are people still in awe of his 'Sapiens' and '21 Lessons' books... which make him sound like a big thinking good guy, able to lead a lost generation in navigating our chaos?
If so, look again, this is the kind of man that I imagine the literal Antichrist choosing as an adviser.
The whole world faces a monetary reset, as the 50 year cycle comes to an end.
Different regions and power blocs are trying to engineer the softest landing for themselves, while nudging the others over the edge.
US/EU & Friends thought they nudged BRICS while pushing through their own 'Great Reset'.
But it's backfiring badly. Resource rich and self-sufficient Russia jumped the gun and put currency back on gold standard.
People who believe Elon Musk is just some quirky tech bro that invented the electric car (ha!) should look closer at how he made his fortune.
Musk is a co-founder PayPal through a merger. That's right, he's a member of the PayPal mafia.
Why's this significant? Much of the PayPal mafia started much of centralized social media or were early investors.
Regarding social media, let's look at how significant the PayPal mafia has been.
Burned time at #Parler, #Gettr, and #Gab (all accounts since deleted), thinking I was following a #Bitcoin Twitter exodus, only to find a ghost town taken over by crypto scammers, nft degenerates, and general 'q-anon' legacy thinking about gesara quantum #blockchain nonsense (priming for cbdc).
#Twitter with all it's sinister flaws was still better than this.
